Milan

Fashion Capital of World

In many ways the most modern of Italian cities, Milan is a busy, elegant metropolis with an impressive list of grand palaces, fine churches, and important museums.
Step off the beaten path and head to Brescia Castle and Certosa di Pavia. Appreciate the collections at Gallerie d’Italia and Tempio Civico della Beata Vergine Incoronata. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Milan: Bergamo (Cattedrale (Duomo) di Bergamo e Battistero & Cappella Colleoni), Santuario di Caravaggio - Santa Maria del Fronte (in Caravaggio) and Duomo Vecchio di Brescia (in Brescia). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Duomo di Milano, contemplate the long history of Chiesa di San Bernardino alle Ossa, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Chiesa di Santa Maria presso San Satiro, and explore the world behind art at Bagatti Valsecchi Museum.
